    I will miss you Red! I enjoyed seeing and visiting with you in my office at "The Oaks At Beaumont.". You made me laugh and touched my heart. I know how much you cared for Elaine you told me many times how she was the love of your life and how much you cared for Cheryl. He always bragged about Cheryl to me. He said she was a strong and smart woman. I'm glad I got to know Red and Cheryl they were very sweet. I pray the family finds peace and comfort. Red touched many of our lives at "The Oaks At Beaumont". He will be truly missed.
